sgt Ivan jackson 35 squadronHello, I think two Jacksons, both 35 Squadron, lost within a couple of days of each other may have been mixed. The first one is the subject of a single entry in "We act with one accord" by Alan Cooper (History of No. 35 Squadron) : "7/9 (sic) September [1941] Sgt E.H. Jackson POW". "Footprints in the Sands of Time" by Oliver Clutton-Brock, his entry is as follow : Jackson EH Sgt 35 Sqn, Halifax L9566, 10 September 1941, raid on Turin, Camp 8B/L6/357, PoW number 9594, [8B/L6 ?] The following crew in "We act with one accord" was lost during the night 10/11 September 1941, Sgt I. Jackson was the second pilot, in F/O G.S. Williams crew. He was the only man killed in action, all the other were captured. The crew listed is Williams, Osborne, Hedley, Sgt I. Jackson, Ryder, Urquhart, Murrell, crash-landed Yvetot-Bocage, near Valognes. That's in the Cherbourg peninsula. In Chorley, page 143, the crew is listed as Williams, Osborne, Murrell, Hedley, Ryder, Sgt E.H. Jackson, Urquhart, in L9566 TL-R. "It is believed the crew mistook the Cherbourg peninsula for the English coast and turned towards France, instead of maintaining a northerly track". "Footprints..." has them in L9566. Name: JACKSON, IVAN Initials: I Nationality: United Kingdom Rank: Sergeant (Air Gnr.) Regiment/Service: Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve Unit Text: 35 Sqdn. Age: 29 Date of Death: 08/09/1941 Service No: 1019202 Additional information: Son of Joseph and Annie Jackson, of Slaggyford, Northumberland. Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead Grave/Memorial Reference: Coll. grave 2. C. 15-18. Cemetery: KIEL WAR CEMETERY I'm puzzled by the fact he's buried in a collective grave. It's possible Alan Cooper has mixed both Jacksons, but Sgt Ivan Jackson is not recorded either in the Roll of Honour (volume 9) of the Bomber Command Losses (he should be on page 62)...

Unidentified PoWs from BC 35 Sqn in 1941Hello again to All, I have some crewmen for whom I don't have any first names, and consequently their service number. All were 35 Sqn members and became a PoW in 1941. I tried to find some close name in the PoW list, without success. They may have been listed in military hospitals. They are: Sgt Harding (PoW 30.O6/01.07 41) L9499 Sgt Roberts (PoW 07/08.07.41) L9502 Sgt Cattran (as for Roberts) Sgt Hedley ((PoW 11/12.09.41) L9566 Sgt Ryder (as for Hedley) Many thanks in advance for any help provided Phil ....Read More.Phil Listemann on 1st August 2014 09:41:10
Unidentified PoWs from BC 35 Sqn in 1941Paul, Headley is listed in 'Footprints' as Sgt X X Headley of 35 Squadron L9566 HAL captured on 10.09.41 on a raid on Turin. No other information is known about him but the ORB's will tell you if this is your man or another Headley. From the lack of information, he may have been liberated so a Liberation Questionnaire may not be available. Regards, Nick KenFentonsWar.com Sorry, edited for typo on date of capture ....Read More.NickFenton on 4th August 2014 07:40:29
Unidentified PoWs from BC 35 Sqn in 1941Nick "Clutton-Brock used POW references not as you suggest so l do not see the relevance." He may well have used POW references, but the appendices at the back contain no evidence he found POW reference detail on Sgt Hedley, it says Sgt XX Headley of 35 Squadron L9566 HAL captured on 10.09.41 on a raid on Turin XX being unknown, no POW reference, no POW Camp, only the bare basis of what is known about POW "Hedley" in so much a Hedley was shot down on 10.09.41 in L9566 - This being as written in Chorley. We might have to await the release of the relevant Air 81 file to confirm. (Unless someone can supply the liberation questionnaire) Paul ....Read More.paulmcmillan on 5th August 2014 03:46:39
